Kim Kardashian’s Privacy Breached: Hospital Staff Fired for Snooping

Five staff members and one student research assistant at Cedars-Sinai Hospital, where Kim Kardashian gave birth to baby North West, have been fired for snooping through her medical records and possibly leaking information to the media, the L.A. Times reports.

Kardashian's files were “inappropriately accessed” along with those of 14 other patients between June 18 and 24, according to the paper.

Kim and boyfriend Kanye West welcomed their daughter on June 15 and stayed at the hospital for about a week.

Sources told TMZ that the Kardashian family suspected a privacy breach after information about the child was leaked to the media. Kim was reportedly notified of the issue by the hospital and is happy with the way Cedars handled the situation.
